Yes, invention is the mother of necessity, and my little XO is proof. Since I got it a week ago I’ve added all manner of doo-dads and thingamajigs, usually keeping to the green motif, and sinking at least another 7500 yen into it.

I’ve added a nifty USB-to-LAN converter — a Buffalo LUA-U2-KTX, which was a completely undeducated purchase that I am almost embarrassed to admit. I literally grabbed it off the shelf without checking the chipset or compatibility or anything, like some sort of Linux newb.

And wouldn’t you know, it works like a charm. Lucky!
